Just like turning a wooden pen, twist and click pencil kits are also turned using a pen mandrel with bushings. A pen and pencil set make a perfect gift, especially when you use matching exotic wood blanks. In additional to traditional pencil kits, we also offer 5.6mm sketch and toolbox pen kits perfect for drawing, sketching or general woodshop use.

This kit looks and functions really well. I made one (technically two) for my father to take on construction missions trips. The issue I had was during assembly of the the sharpener piece, you have to be extremely careful not to glue it so that the sharpener cannot be used. I went through two trying to do this properly. You either end up using too much glue and glue it all up and cannot use it, or you use too little glue and it does not stay together. Otherwise, like I said before, once its finished it looks great and very functional.Read All Reviews

This is my opinion only. Your experience may be different. A great idea! Combine a pencil & pen in one. I bought 3 kits to try out before ordering a supply to sell at craft shows and my 'net site. Finish is very good. Kits are easy to assemble. Produces a good looking pen/pencil. The mechanism does not switch easily from pen to pencil and jams frequently. Advancing lead for pencil is unreliable. If I were to sell these as a finished product, I believe most of them would be returned in a short time and the buyer would be asking for a refund. Hopefully this kit will be improved.Read All Reviews
